There’s something very dangerous and frightening
About what happens when a bunch of people who
Must hate gather together, but people who love
Have more power. Their consciousness is far above
That of others who have nothing better to do
Than to share things that are counter enlightening.
Why is it called The Playing Field? Are we a game?
And have We The People become innocent pawns
Who are ruled by corruption? The answer is Yes.
Who among those now playing will clean up the mess
Of our government? And what are the pros and cons
Of each runner? What message does each one proclaim?
It’s much bigger than Flint. It’s all over this land.
How people are mistreated especially those
Of color who do not have the means to fight back
Tells us that we adhere to a mindset of lack.
Who among those now running would want to expose
All the darkness? Who does have the most righteous stand?
Trading right and wrong for left and right, we’ve become
Extremely polarized. What can we do to change
This dynamic? The change is within everyone.
Unity in diversity cannot be done
If the notion of peace to some of us sounds strange.
Freedom is for all people and not just for some.
